Abstract:

This brief report covers studies of the stability of a well-characterized model of a metal-metalloid glassy alloy A3B in contact with a planar surface of a stable congruent crystal i.e., crystal with the same composition as the glass through computer simulations based on a NPT symplectic algorithm based on Nose-Hoover constraints developed recently by Laird.
